During my years living in the area, one of my favorite Atlanta skyscrapers was Suntrust Plaza. This impressive landmark building is part of Peachtree Center. Completed in 1992, it’s the second tallest Atlanta skyscraper behind the Bank of America building in nearby Midtown.
There’s just something about the blocky but sleek style of this Atlanta skyscraper that has always made it stand apart from the rest for me. Suntrust Plaza’s postmodern design reminds me of the sort of futuristic skyscraper you would see in the skyline of a movie matte painting for a sci-fi film. Can’t you imagine filming for a movie of that genre taking place right here? Set phasers to stun!
This particular Atlanta skyscraper owes its memorable design to architect John C. Portman, Jr. A 1950 Georgia Tech grad, his career has spanned decades which helped shape the core of Atlanta’s downtown skyline. And Suntrust Plaza is just one of a large portfolio of landmark buildings in the US and beyond. Originally named One Peachtree Center, Portman & Associates still has offices in this same Atlanta Skyscraper.
This Atlanta skyscraper print is based on photos from my last week living in the area. I took a long stroll through downtown and Midtown, mostly along Peachtree Street. I remember when I arrived outside the tower, I gazed almost straight upward and immediately felt this perspective on the building really accentuated the futuristic vibe that Suntrust Plaza has. There’s also a touch of the infinite here as the tower’s impressive 869 feet of height feels exaggerated to a great effect!
Have you also admired this Atlanta skyscraper? Or does the bold futurist vibe in this artwork speak to you on its own merit? I hope you might take a few moments to share your thoughts!
